July Resolutions- better late than never?

The Recap:
January - read through the bible in a year. Wow, yeah. so I'm a wee bit behind. Like, a month behind. I've resorted to listening to the old testament part of my reading (the biggest chunk each day) with a free website. Hey, then I can do the dishes while I'm "in the word." kind of. sad.
February - envelope system. back to business- june was and july has been soley a debit-card month. But I'm equipped with cash and determined to use it only for the rest of the month.
March - watch internet time. what's the internet?
April - walk whenever possible. Not a ton of walking going on, but I'm trying. Resolutions are hard. :(
May - stockpile the freezer. OAMC style. Happy to say, N/A! We've been SO blessed with meals from family, friends, and our church, that I've only cracked into maybe 10 of my 50 freezer meals. I'll be good for the rest of July. And perhaps most of August? I'm loving it so far, though. I'm totally doing it again once the frozen feasts run out!
June- have a healthy baby and try to stay sane- done! lol

This Month and Onward:
July- ban high fructose corn syrup from our house. I'd like to ban it from our lives, but sometimes you go out to eat and have no idea where it's hiding. I've been trying to do this to some extent all year, but it's time to really crack down. Of course, I'm far too frugal to throw out my giant bottle of heinz ketchup, but I'm certainly never buying it again (until they change their formula.) That's it. We will not fool our metabolisms with it anymore. I'm checking labels. It's one small step toward healthier eating!

we have working on getting rid of HFCS this year. Trader Joes makes a good ketchup with no HFCS in it.
